mcdonnell beat crh deeds, and more importantly, independent voters went for barack obama, and they voted for mcdonnell. and the same thing was true in new jersey. independent voters favored chris christie over jon corzine by a two-one margin in new jersey, as well, and this should sound alarm bells, because that should reflect on president obama's performance and a resounding rejection of his agenda. but guess what? they think it was just great. nancy pelosi decided to block out these two losses and concentrate on the seat that the democrats picked up. >> we picked up one in california and one in new york. sean: wow, she sounds convincing, does she not? now, joining me more with what the republican victories mean for those states and america at large, newt gingrich joins me. you have to give her credit for trying, right? >> she has to try because she has a huge vote coming up, trying to pass the socialist health bill. i think on saturday. they are going to keep them in. she is desperate to get it through before the country rises in total rebellion against the house. the most dangerous th

obama huddled with australian prime minister kevin rudd but took no questions on the new afghanistan and pakistan strategy he will announce tomorrow. at a white house meeting last night, the president issued orders to send upwards of 30,000 additional forces to afghanistan, nearly the amount urgently requested three months ago by general stanley mcchrystal. mr. obama's hand-picked commander in afghanistan. >> clearly general mcchrystal is getting most of what he wants, and therefore, it has to be seen, generally speaking, as a victory for his position. >> and a defeat for vice president biden who argued against sending more combat troops. with 68,000 u.s. fore forces there now, the white house says the additional forces costing roughly $30 billion a year will concentrate on training, not confronting al qaeda or the taliban. >> we are there to partner with the afghans, to train the afghan national security forces, the army and the poe and the poe popo police. that sour main mission. one white house correspondent calls it inept. >> our strategies should not rely upon an accelerated tra

today. president obama just finished his news conference with the indian prime minister and savannah guthrie is live on the north lawn of the white house. savannah, let's talk about the big issues between the two of them. first and foremost, the president, of course, was questioned about afghanistan and a big question with the indian leader, as well. >> absolutely. we talk about afghanistan and we now talk about pakistan, afghanistan as a region and indian/pakistan are long-time enemies. it's a very interesting dynamic and the timing is fascinating, isn't it? the first state visit being india. at the moment, the president has finally, we're told, come close, if not already have arrived at his decision about afghanistan. what we know the decision is coming within days. i was told it was likely tuesday evening and a prime minister speech, but that is not a luck. we will have to wait and see if that is going to be the day he announces the decision. he previewed that decision today for those of us in the press, but you just played really the key sound bite there where he set some pretty
to sign on but president obama told major garrett that language doesn't strike the proper balance between a woman's right to choose and the federal funding fire wall. >> not yet. >> still, abortion is just one of the senate bill's many targets. union workers who traded pay raises for generous healthcare benefits for themselves and families could face a tax on the portion of family plans that exceed $23,000 in val iewvment the senate bill includes a tax on elective surgery, the so-called botox tax, the target of doctors who make that their specialty. medicare tax would rise for people making more than $250,000 a year from one and a half to 2% in the senate bill. the group americans for tax reform complains the bill uses the word tax 183 times. that's not surprising. the bill is more than 2,000 pages long and already being used as a prop by critics just as the house bill was. long, some democrats say, doesn't necessarily mean lousy. >> when it comes to the size of legislation, it was the bank bailout bill that the last president proposed. it was only three pages long. there is a work of wis
